spring is here

Spring is here, spring is here. I think that spring is the happiest time of the year.

sport to watch, and being from Seattle I’m a huge Mariners fan. Last week we were able to spend a few days in Arizona enjoying some sun, warm weather and watch the Mariners in pre-season action. Even though it was a short trip we spent one morning at the Mariners complex in Peoria watching practice. The day we went just happened to be a day off for he Mariners, but there were a number of minor league players around. The boys enjoyed playing on the bleachers exploring with grandpa while Micha and I got a few minutes to watch batting practice.

We also managed to get out to one game, and although Griffey didn’t even play it was fun to watch. 495851280_cimg3365Not only were there a number of home-runs (two of which came within a few feet of where we were sitting) but the Mariners actually got a win. And it’s wonderful to see that Andy is becoming a baseball fan. I look forward to taking him to many games in the years to come, hopefully most of them Mariners victories. I have also included a picture that Andy took of Mom and Dad at the game, not a bad picture considering he’s not ever four yet.
